|I AM NOT SURE IT WAS SMART TO TAKE THE PICTURES OUTSIDE, BUT I GUESS I DECIDED THE LIGHT WAS BEST OUT HERE. BUT YOU CAN'T REALLY SEE THE QUILTING THIS WAY. HUBBY IS 6'3" SO YOU GET KIND OF THE IDEA OF HOW BIG THIS IS.|
|I LOVE THE BACKING ON THIS QUILT, THOUGH YOU CANNOT REALLY SEE IT ALL THIS WELL IN THIS PICTURE. NOTICE MY LABEL IN THE LOWER CORNER|
|I LOVED THE WAY SHE QUILTED THIS|
|ALL THE QUILTING (EXCEPT FOR IN THE CENTER) WAS DONE WITH A LIGHT GREY THREAD|
|YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE BIG FLOWERS HERE...LOVED IT!|
I have ordered the fabric (FINALLY) and settled on a pattern I am going to use for my next quilt. I have decided for me that picking out the fabrics and the pattern is by far the most difficult part of the whole process. Maybe if I was just trying to please myself (haven't made one for myself yet) it would be simple, but I probably agonize way too much over what might please the recipient. Anyway, I will be showing this fabric when I get it. I love it...and I am hoping they will too. I am also going to be busy this next week making a scripture pillow for another one of my nieces. It is her 40th birthday so I wanted to make something for her too. Honestly, I have a hard time keeping it up with all I'd like to make.
Meanwhile, in other news, hubby's dad, who will be 85 at the end of June is staying with us for a couple of days. He is in need of a triple by-pass surgery and we were hoping to get it done here so we would be close to help him out. However it is looking now like he might be going to Las Vegas for the surgery so I guess we will see how it all works out. It is soo hard dealing with aging parents. My hubby's dad has enjoyed fantastic health until now, and I think it is soo hard for them to consider giving up their independence. I totally understand of course. Growing old is just not easy.
Guess that's it for now. Hope you are all having a good week-end. We are thoroughly enjoying ours. Blessings to you all! Debbie
I decided to link up to a sewing/quilting party for the first time. You can join the others, or enjoy their projects HERE at Quilt Story. I know you will enjoy!
